Book II Proposition 8 | |
And, since CG is equal to GQ, and QR to RP, AG is also equal to MQ, and QL to RF, [I.36] But MQ is equal to QL, for they are complements of the parallelogram ML; [I.43] therefore AG is also equal to RF; therefore the four areas AG, MQ, QL, RF are equal to one another. Therefore the four are quadruple of AG. |
